Bill Hicks, standup comedian, musician, and social critic, died February 26, 1994 at age 32.  He spent his time telling it like it is; exposing the corporate mainstream media and corrupt politicians, and spreading consciousness.  This interview on Public Access TV in Austin on CapZeyez, was Bill’s final interview before his death.  In it, Bill shows footage of the Bradley tank the government used to smash into the Branch Davidians’ compound in Waco, Texas.  Bill had this to say on the incident (go to 56 minutes):

“The implications of this, just ponder that, that every MSM news source told us that they launched tear gas in order to convince the moms and the kids to get out.  This meanwhile, as you can see, they’re destroying the compound which the kids were inside of – how they knew that they weren’t going to run a kid over, I don’t know.  Just think of what that implies, that no one has picked up on this news story except public access, A.  And B that the ATF and the FBI are liars and murderers and if they had any honor, if they were truly human beings, they would commit suicide, and explain their role in this murder and mass murder of innocent women and children.  Why’s it’s not news worthy, you tell me, you call me and tell me why it’s not on the news.”

  • I would describe this guy as a religious fanatic – he professes to be a skeptic, but he believes everything that is mainstream, not because he has researched – but rather because he simply rejects, or distorts information which conflicts with his incredibly robust internal description of reality. He has a fanatical level of belief, in cultural norms, a totally irrational human being who is afraid of being different.

    How about actually using the scientific method, rather than believing scientific dogma. The power of science is the process, not the institutions – those have become over run by money, self importance and fear of being different.

    I believe three things, I observe, remember and reason – beyond that I have models of reality with various levels of certainty, some strong enough to modify my behavior, others purely speculative. This guy is a complete joke.
